About me

I received an MA in Foreign Language at West Virginia University (USA), an MA in Translation English/Spanish at University of Valladolid (Spain) and a PhD in Translation and Interpreting at University of Valladolid and University of Ottawa (Canada).

My main line of research is in terminology from a functional perspective to enrich dictionary making. In my PhD, in particular, I explored synonymy in different registers and languages within the medical field.

My second line of research is based on innovative methods and activities that contribute to the teaching of Spanish. At the moment I am participating in several projects. For example, at LSE, I am involved in the efficiency of improvisation activities for language learning. Besides I collaborate in the Ignite project whose mission is to develop resources and pedagogies for bi/plurilingual students.

I also work as a Spanish Lecturer at Birkbeck University of London and King’s College London.

About the Language Centre

The Language Centre here at the London School of Economics reflects the specialist nature of the School itself, namely, a world class institution where the quality of teaching and research is paramount.

LSE is not just a multi-national university but also a multi-lingual one.

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, undergraduate degree courses and a range of language options that you can take outside of your main degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.

The Language Centre is part of LSE’s Academic and Professional Development Division.
